Pray Out Loud posted by John Sorensen on Apr 29, 2019
Do you absolutely hate the thought of praying out loud?
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, for Share Life Today. A lot of people don’t want to lead a group in prayer because they don’t know what to pray, or don’t want to sound less spiritual than the others in the group. Well, this is what my pastor calls ‘stinkin’ thinkin’!’ This attitude makes the prayer about you and your words, but appearances and fancy words do not matter to God! Change your mindset to one that seeks to lead others closer to Christ, rather than impressing those around you. The Lord says He will hear our prayers when we humble ourselves in prayer and seek His face! Next time you’re asked to lead a group in prayer, don’t be scared! You’re talking to your God and leading others to do the same. Place your focus on the magnificence and power of the Lord, and let all else fade away.
